Good to know that PBIS is working.  We will share this video with our PBIS Team when school begins in the fall.

These 'four tips' are relevant and important. But they also really don't represent anything new or novel with regards to what we've known for a while about the effective implementation PBIS. 

What else did the referenced research identify towards more effective/consistent implementation and 'Fit' of PBIS practices in and across schools? All schools, of course, are not the same! 

How about those schools where a percentage of staff/faculty really aren't on board and/or when the classroom implementation component is inconsistent (and, often, misunderstood)? 

How about schools that don't fit the more traditional PBIS 'Triangle'  due to environmental/community variables, differential teacher training/priorities and/or a higher percentage of in-need students?

What about schools who may 'cherry pick' immediately preferred components out of the far more comprehensive PBIS system without fully recognizing the need for and value of an integrated and simultaneous implementation of the model? 

For instance, I've seen and/or been told by more than a few schools that they were going to first work on 'student behavior' without understanding that prioritized  attention to school 'culture' starting with faculty/staff and student interaction combined with aligned classroom PBIS implementation/instruction are together the first most effective ways to 'work on behavior.'

Thank you for your dedication and hard work to school discipline.  May I add that the Team needs the presence of an administrator who believes in the critical features of PBIS.
